These are mixed media pieces I did fairly quickly to get an idea of how the universe I want to create will look. I talked to Graham and he had the idea of basing the structure on an atom. So I started looking up the geometry of covalent bonds. All the individual planets are connected by tubes (it it was a covalent structure these would be the bonds) I like the idea, I think it ties the world together. The next step is to try a much larger panning shot that shows different depths. The planets are traditional made cut outs, the tubes are vector images made in flash and the sky is photoshop.
